Can yellow fever becaused by the vaccine?

Yes in Certain Cases. Yellow fever vaccine is a "live attenuated" vaccine. That means there is live virus in the vaccine, but it has been weakened. So, it should not cause yellow fever in someone with a normal immune system. But it could theoretically cause yellow fever in someone with a depressed immune system (e.g. Hiv). Please consult your doctor for any specific issues relating to your health and the vaccine.
No. No, the yellow fever vaccine is a live but attenuated vaccine meaning that the virus strain used is weakened, and thus making it unable to cause serious infection. There is an exceedingly small chance of yel-avd, which is a yellow fever like reaction. Studies and data currently suggest that there is likely some other reason for this like genetics and it is very rare.
